Seeing Sense: Visual literacy as a tool for libraries, learning and reader development
Foreword by Sir Philip Pullman, CBE, FRSL
Illustrated foreword by Chris Riddell, OBE
The burgeoning field of visual literacy can be universally understood across a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, regardless of traditional literacy levels. A key tool for navigating digital devices, there is often an antipathy surrounding visual literacy borne out of stigma and at times, intimidation.
Seeing Sense brings together research and best practice from different organisations and institutions all over the world to showcase the role of visual literacy as a tool for promoting reading. It will be key in raising awareness among librarians and education practitioners, promoting aspiration and achievement among the children and young people they work with.
